Japanese Anime TV Ranking, July 14–20

posted on by Egan Loo
Totoro, Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Pokémon film airings earn high ratings

To take advantage of the summer break and the recent spate of theatrical anime premieres such as Studio Ghibli's Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea and Pocket Monsters Diamond & Pearl: Giratina to Sora no Hanataba Shaymin, four anime movies aired on Japanese television. My Neighbor Totoro reran on NTV at 21:03 on July 18, twenty years after it premiered. Even though it was the 10th airing of the film, it gained a 17.6% household rating. Fuji TV broadcasted The Girl Who Leapt Through Time at 21:00 on the next day to earn 10.0%. TV Tokyo replaced the usual weekly Pokémon episode with a July 17 airing of last year's Pokémon: The Rise of Darkrai film at 19:00 with a 8.4% household rating. Finally, the classic 1986 Toki no Tabibito -Time Stranger- anime film aired on July 18 at 2:50 a.m. for a 1.6% rating.
